Token Entry-Nerve Endings-Search-Out Of Body-Only Glory @ Philadelphia PA 7-24-16

This show seemed to pop up real suddenly a few weeks before, but I made sure to get a ticket. I have always missed Token Entry at their reunions (1994, 2011), so I definitely wanted to check them out. Adding Search to the show definitely sealed the deal for me. I missed both Out Of Body and Only Glory because I was outside waiting for a friend to arrive at the show. Nerve Endings were okay, but I didn’t feel too moved by them either way. Search are a new band member ex members of Mouthpiece, Hands Tied, Turning Point,…

Parade Brigade #3 The Reviews

Issue three would be the end of Parade Brigade Fanzine and, as promised in issue two, we mostly only reviewed records that were sent to us. Boy were some of these records awful! John and I handle most of the reviews with only the Carry On and Esteem records getting both of us. Issue four would have had a Carry On interview that I think John actually did…? Our friend Ryan, who did a lot of grunt work with me getting this issue thrown together as quickly as it was, jumped in to do a few reviews as well. 200…

In The Blink Of An Eye Fanzine #2: The Reviews

These were the reviews from In The Blink Of An Eye Fanzine #2 (#1 was a brief one pager that a few of these reviews appeared in originally). After a few issues of What Was Said, I switched names and tried pretty unsuccessfully to reboot the fanzine. A lot of the same problems that plagued WWS were all over this one too. This came out in the summer of 1998. I am thinking late in the month of August perhaps? I did not do another fanzine for about eight months before the first issue of Parade Brigade Fanzine came together.…

Fastbreak-Saves The Day-Farside at The Melody Bar in New Brunswick, NJ 8-3-99

During the summer of 1999, I did not get out much, a combination of a few creepy internet threats, some pretty severe depression, and work issues, but I ended up heading up to this show and met up with this young lady I was not quite dating, but definitely trying to head in that direction with, at this show. This show was absolutely horrible. I showed up late to this show because I had to stop on campus while heading up to the show. I do not exactly remember why I stopped on campus, but it might have involved dropping…

Parade Brigade Fanzine #1: The Reviews

We put out Parade Brigade Fanzine #1 in the spring of 1999. I have no idea what show we released it for, but I think it was at Manville Elks Lodge. Maybe. Amendment 18 Demo This band has members of a number of bands (Insted, Chorus Of Disapproval, Outspoken, etc) I had different expectations for this demo expecting more moshy stuff, but I got straight forward hardcore with interesting breakdowns. Lyrically, this isn’t as “militant,” as xChorusx was, but good all around especially “Eulogy.” I look forward to more. BW Bane Holding This Moment Equal Vision Records Bane sort of…

Better Than A 1000-In My Eyes-Speak 714-Good Clean Fun-Battery at YWCA Philadelphia PA 7-12-98

Fresh off working 15 days straight because my burn out boss couldn’t get it together to hire someone else, I headed to Philadelphia to check out the Revelation Records rehash tour heading through America during the summer of 1998. I kind of didn’t like most of these bands, but we wanted to see In My Eyes and interview Dan O Mahoney, so off we went. I remember absolutely nothing about Battery, but I think Good Clean Fun jumped on after them. They had just put out their demo, so the, uh, “joke” was pretty fresh at this point, which would…

Parade Brigade Fanzine #2: The Reviews

All three “staff members” did reviews for issue two. BW=Bill Wend, John=John Piorkowski, Ferret=Justin Bragg I got a ton of shit in the weeks before that In My Eyes record came out. I got it in the mail, listened a few times, and posted one morning on the Rev Board that I did not like it. I said it reminded me of Better Than A Thousand and was kind of shitty. I went to class and came back to this huge thread about what a fag/loser/pussy I was. LOL. Oh noes, I didn’t like your precious friend’s band and their…

Mouthpiece-Can’t Kill What’s Inside

Mouthpiece Can’t Kill What’s Inside Discography CD Revelation Records What more can really be said about Mouthpiece at this point? I’m sure you know their story and how influential they were on 1990’s straight edge hardcore that didn’t sound like Pantera or some emo bullshit. This CD has everything I could ever think to include and more in reverse order, from their final recording on the Antimatter Fanzine compilation all the way back to very early live tracks that never made it to the studio. Most of Mouthpiece’s records have held up at least moderately well. Some parts of Face…

Nausea-Punk Terrorist Anthology Volume One

Nausea Punk Terrorist Anthology Volume One CD Alternative Tentacles Records Nausea have always been a band I have had mixed feelings about. I first heard them on The Way It Is and was blown away by their track Fallout Of Our Being. At the time, I was going to a friend’s house almost every weekend to dub his older brother’s vinyl. One Friday afternoon at school I gave him a tape to dub me the Rites of Spring EP, The Year In Seven Inches, and Nausea’s Extinction LP. When I got home I quickly listened through the first side; I’d…

Robot Whales-Vehicle

Robot Whales Vehicle LP Collapse Records Last year’s sleeper hit on the Revelation compilation returns with a new LP filled with mid 90’s style hardcore. Like I said last year, these guys sound like a breath of fresh air right now. If you like stuff like Quicksand, Lincoln, Burn, Helmet, and bands like that you will love this. Bonus points for covering Electric Funeral live. I’ve been spinning this one a lot lately. Check this and the other great records on Collapse Records out. Members of this band were also recently in Get Real.
